Jacques Le Roux updated OFBIZ-11407:
    Priority: Major  (was: Minor)

> Upgrade Tomcat from 9.0.29 to 9.0.31 (CVE-2020-1938)
> ----------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: OFBIZ-11407
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-11407
>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: Sub-task
>          Components: framework
>    Affects Versions: Trunk
>            Reporter: Michael Brohl
>            Assignee: Michael Brohl
>            Priority: Major
>             Fix For: Upcoming Branch
> CVE-2020-1938 AJP Request Injection and potential Remote Code Execution
> Severity: High
> Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation
> Versions Affected:
> Apache Tomcat 9.0.0.M1 to 9.0.30
> Apache Tomcat 8.5.0 to 8.5.50
> Apache Tomcat 7.0.0 to 7.0.99
> Description:
> When using the Apache JServ Protocol (AJP), care must be taken when
> trusting incoming connections to Apache Tomcat. Tomcat treats AJP
> connections as having higher trust than, for example, a similar HTTP
> connection. If such connections are available to an attacker, they can
> be exploited in ways that may be surprising.
> Prior to Tomcat 9.0.31, 8.5.51 and 7.0.100, Tomcat shipped with an AJP
> Connector enabled by default that listened on all configured IP
> addresses. It was expected (and recommended in the security guide) that
> this Connector would be disabled if not required.
> Prior to this vulnerability report, the known risks of an attacker being
> able to access the AJP port directly were:
> - bypassing security checks based on client IP address
> - bypassing user authentication if Tomcat was configured to trust
>   authentication data provided by the reverse proxy
> This vulnerability report identified a mechanism that allowed the following:
> - returning arbitrary files from anywhere in the web application
>   including under the WEB-INF and META-INF directories or any other
>   location reachable via ServletContext.getResourceAsStream()
> - processing any file in the web application as a JSP
> Further, if the web application allowed file upload and stored those
> files within the web application (or the attacker was able to control
> the content of the web application by some other means) then this, along
> with the ability to process a file as a JSP, made remote code execution
> possible.
> Mitigation:
> It is important to note that mitigation is only required if an AJP port
> is accessible to untrusted users.
> - If AJP support is not required, the Connector may be disabled e.g. by
>   removing the AJP Connector element from the server.xml file
> - If AJP support is required, untrusted users may be prevented from
>   accessing the AJP port by one or more of the following means:
>   - configuring appropriate network firewall rules
>   - configuring an explicit address attribute to the connector so that
>     the Connector listens on a non-public interface
>   - configuring a shared secret for the AJP connection
> Users wishing to take a defence-in-depth approach and block the vector
> that permits returning arbitrary files and execution as JSP may upgrade to:
> - Apache Tomcat 9.0.31 or later
> - Apache Tomcat 8.5.51 or later
> - Apache Tomcat 7.0.100 or later
> Users should note that a number of changes were made to the default AJP
> Connector configuration in these versions to harden the default
> configuration. The changes are:
> - The AJP Connector is commented out in the provided server.xml file.
> - The "requiredSecret" attribute has been renamed "secret" (the old name
>   continues to work but is deprecated).
> - A new attribute "secretRequired" has been added which defaults to
>   "true". When this attribute is "true", the AJP Connector will not
>   start unless a shared secret has been configured.
> - The default listen address for the AJP Connector is now the loopback
>   address.
> It is likely that users upgrading to 9.0.31, 8.5.51 or 7.0.100 and later
> will need to make small changes to their configurations as a result.
